About the Book

"I am alone on my island at last." So begins the account of Emilie Carpentier, heiress to her solitary Atlantic property and last in line of the Carpentier dynasty.

But Emilie's peace and solitude is destined to be short-lived, for a stranger arriving on the shores of her island wins her heart in unprecedented fashion. Not for the first time, Emilie is forced into a moral struggle, now stretching not only her heart, but also her mind.

Just as she is beginning to cope with this, however, a band of slave traders seek her life, and since the help Emilie relied on is not forthcoming, she and her newfound love must fight against overwhelming odds.

Set in the late eighteen-seventies, this historical novel concludes the Carpentier Trilogy.
